PS- Don't be tricked get the real Manchego, otherwise you’re bound to be disappointed. Look at the back of the wheel to find an official D.O. tab labeling it Manchego. Without that, the cheese is a fake! Watch out especially for “Manchego-style” cheese, which comes with no guarantees of even being similar to real Manchego.
